Hire the best private guides to truly experience Sicily


Sicily's historical legacy is as varied and immense as any in the Mediterranean. Elymian, Greek, Phoenician and Roman archaeological sites dot the island, age-old cities, towns and villages testify to the comings-and-goings of innumerable invaders, each of whom left their own indelible artistic and architectural treasures...

Thanks to this incredible variety, however, Sicily's history can be a little confusing! That's why we recommend you hire the services of one of our guides if you're planning on visiting one or more of the island's numerous historical sites.

All the guides we work with have been tried and tested, both by us and by a long series of clients. They are all hugely experienced, deeply knowledgeable and have considerable story-telling skills.

Our guides cover Palermo, Segesta, Erice, Selinunte, the Cave di Cusa and Trapani, Marsala. Cefalu, Tindari, Syracuse, the UNESCO Heritage Site towns fo the Val di Noto (Noto, Ragusa, Modica, Scicli and Caltagirone), Villa Romana del Casale at Piazza Armerina, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Catania, Taormina... practically everything!

So, if you want to find out more than a guidebook can tell you, just send an e-mail to experiences@thethinkingtraveller.com and let us do the rest!

Terms and Conditions

Think Experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned not controlled by The Thinking Traveller and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of every Think Experience up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons including where it considers that there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (i.e. helicopter rides, excursions on Mount Etna, boat charter, etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in contact directly with the local provider before deciding to buy. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.

In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you, but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
